Art in the Park

In 2018, Art in the Park featured a special attraction as Matthew Blum, delivered a live ambrotype process demonstration. Amidst the event’s verdant backdrop, Blum masterfully crafted glass plate portraits, channeling the historic essence of this 19th-century art form. His demonstration offered visitors a fascinating window into the precision and artistry of wet plate photography, merging the past’s allure with the present’s appreciation for timeless craftsmanship.
